The Week Ahead for Scorpio


15th Oct 2018 - 21st Oct 2018

Saying it with sugar.

When Mercury is in your sign you get to be in the driver’s seat. You get to make the decisions and float your ideas. So, if you are currently of the opinion that other people are calling all the shots and you are waiting on their decisions, this state of affairs needs reversing.

Take charge, Scorpio. You don’t have to shout and scream, in fact the better route to having your voice heard, is saying it with sweetness and sentiment, compassion and sensitivity. The weekend is perfect for romance or escaping the realities of the world in any which way you can.

October 2018

The Month Ahead for Scorpio

 It’s that time of year when the Sun is in the occluded twelfth house and you could be feeling less than your bouncy self. Worries tend to be exaggerated and despite your best efforts to get people to explain themselves or help you put plans together, no one’s home! All this will change when the Sun enters your own sign on the 23rd. Not only will you gain increasing control of your life but a mystery may well be solved and a decision able to be made. Venus remains in your sign throughout October, so an element of good fortune is with you, however, since this planet is in retrograde there could be delays and complications with a love relationship. Don’t fuss. When a relationship is in transition it is best left to its own devices.

The Year Ahead for Scorpio (2018)


If you have felt life has plateaued or you have been struggling unsuccessfully to achieve a specific objective, this trend is either over or near an end. Jupiter’s entry into your sign last November marked the beginning of an expansive twelve-month phase during which your success rate should be higher than for many years.

Your upwardly-mobile progress isn’t a matter of luck or good karma, but driven by risk and self-belief. Helping you take more risks and thus change your life in ways you had but dreamed of is Uranus. This planet will enter your opposite sign in May, and the first glimpse you could have of its dynamite potential will be on or near the 16th and later in the year, around 24 October.

Other periods of 2018 set to make a difference to your future are late January, mid-February and early August. You may not love everything that happens to you this year, but as 2019 comes in you should be able to look back on more than one superb event.

Love and relationships

Lack of excitement is not something you’ll be complaining about, especially if you have an October birthday. Sudden, passionate encounters and unexpected break-ups could all be part of love’s rich pattern. But, remember: you are the one with the magic dust in your pocket, courtesy of Jupiter.

From September Venus will increase your chances of finding the “One” and experiencing greater happiness in your love life, and should you be ready to tie the knot, the weekend of 14 April and 8 December could be perfect. While 2018 is a time to embrace your power, what will increase your chances of keeping love is giving a partner plenty of freedom.

Relationships require room to breathe. Those of you experiencing the Uranus opposition (ages 42-44) are first in the queue when it comes to life changes in general and relationship U-turns in particular.

Work, life goals and finance

The definition of luck - the moment preparation meets opportunity – has rarely been more in evidence than in 2018. Yes, there will be fortunate developments that come out of the blue (and on at least one occasion it will seem as though you just happened to be in the right place at the right time) but great opportunities are your reward for hard effort and sustained faith in yourself.

Some Scorpios will take on a lead role; others will start their own company or see their business expand; and although there could be problems with partnerships and organizations you have relied upon, an element of divine providence is behind any splits and spats.

The eclipse cycle, which began in August 2016 and will end in January 2019 is primarily focused on your career and home life, thus 31 January, 15 February, 27 July and 11 August are dates around which some of the most course-changing events of the year occur.

Celestial Tip

Pride and fear are the two biggest obstacles to your success and happiness. Keep your eyes on your end game, and prepare to write some new life scripts. As soon as the year begins, get going on your plans.

It will be easier to chart your own course during the first six months, after that the element of the unusual and unexpected will be in play. The Jupiter-Neptune trine adds a divine element to 2018’s forecast, with some Scorpios realizing a dream and others experiencing a clear sense of being guided and protected.

And the times when this force is at its strongest is late May and mid-August.
